CONFIRMED: QPR will not sign French starlet as he will have medical at Rennes tomorrow

Rennes Stade-Vilaine

Paul-Georges Ntep will not be on his way to England despite QPR and Arsenal being keen.

Talented youngster Paul-Georges Ntep has been linked with a move to England recently. The French under-21 international has been linked heavily with Arsenal and QPR in particular - especially after he posted a picture on his Instagram account of him on the Eurostar heading to London.

In the past Ntep openly courted Arsenal while Arsene Wenger also spoke highly of the talented player - but despite conflicting reports it seems that his visit to London earlier in the month was to meet with officials from QPR over a potential switch.

Interest has also been reported from French rivals Saint-Etienne, Lille and Olympique Marseille - but QPR were considered the front-runners to sign the talent - as a potential successor to Loic Remy, currently on loan with Newcastle United.

The interest from Stade Rennes, the only team to have made an official approach for the player, was apparently gone as they have failed to meet the Ligue 2 club’s valuation for the talented forward - said to be in the €10 million region.

Well they obviously came to an agreement on that matter - because he will not be on his way to London this month.

The two clubs have now agreed a fee for the player - and Ntep will have his medical tomorrow.

Translated the attached Tweet says:

Auxerre striker Paul George Ntep is expected to Rennes tonight. The French international will have his medical tomorrow.
